The destroyer, “Mahadev”, “Nataraj”, “Bhole Nath”- These are some of the agnames of Lord Shiva, the great Hindu deity. Tiger skin decorticated and wrapped around his torso, blessed with a third eye-the eye of wisdom and a snake clasped around his clavicles and a trident on his left hand, that’s Lord Shiva!
Lord Shiva (the destroyer) is associated with the Hindu Trinity comprising of Lord Vishnu (the creator) and Lord Brahma (the preserver) as well. Lord Shiva is believed to be an integral part of this trinity because without destruction, restoration is impossible.
Lord Shiva is a true inspiration for his devotees owing to a number of reasons. He was intolerant to the evil, he would take no atrocity. Lord Shiva stands for tranquility. His calm head helped him conquer the evil and remain nonchalant in disturbing times. He preached the essence of evanescence of life-how everything’s short-lived and temporary.
